Replace Drive Belt, Buy Local

I purchased a second-hand Strida about half a year ago. The belt tension is nominal, and the snubber looks okay (1-2mm gap from belt surface). However, the drive belt has developed a v-shaped gash, about 1-2mm, that looks like it’ll only get bigger. I contacted Strida US and they can mail one to me for about $25.

Always one to try to buy local first, I wonder if I can get this belt (1440-8M 13) in a local automotive supply store. Do you know what make and model of automobile I would plug into their finder? Unfortunately, I haven’t found one that allows lookup by the belt dimensions. This might also be useful info for those in a pinch who cannot mail-order from Strida US for one reason or another…
